One of the best things about working at Adafruit is sharing open source electronics with friends and family members who might not have known about all the cool projects you can make with them. Ian from the Adafruit receiving department did just that and he shared with us this photo of his mom in her Mardi Gras Parade costume made with NeoPixels and a Gemma. It looks great! You can check out more photos and read more about her parade group here. Below is a close up of the NeoPixels in action!
